Dubai World Central (DWC) registered a surge in customer numbers in 2019 with annual traffic exceeding 1.6 million (+81.5%) during 2019.

Year on year traffic also increased in the final quarter of the year compared with 2018 as DWC welcomed 363,626 customers in Q4 (+38.2%), mainly due to seasonal operations by chartered airlines.
